Al Franken's new ad features his wife talking about her struggles with alcoholism and how he helped her get through it and kept their family going. It's so refreshing to see a this kind of revealing and personal ad from a politician, especially in today's volatile climate.

You can see all of Al's ads at his Franken For Senate YouTube Page and if you would like to show him some love and donate to his campaign and help him give Norm Coleman the boot, you can visit his official campaign website.

Can you help us out?
